DIY Paper Bag Vase

Need a little Spring in your life? Make this super easy DIY paper bag vase. It's an easy way to dress up your flowers and it makes a great DIY gift. I promise your friends will think you're crafty (even if you're not) if you arrive at their doorstop with this fun painted vase. I was inspired after seeing this paper bag vase over at A Bubbly Life.

This project couldn't be any easier. You don't even have to be good at drawing because polka dots, stripes and pretty much anything looks pretty on a paper bag. 


Supplies: Paper bags (you could use lunch bags or craft bags like the ones I used from Michael's), paint pens (I used Sharpie), and a tall water glass or vase. Almost forgot - you need flowers too! I got my lovelies from my favorite place, The Flower Shop, in Encinitas. 


Here's my new paper bag vase sitting pretty in my bedroom. It's crazy to think about how many options you have with this project. 

Easy to make painted paper bag vase.

And because I was having so much fun and these only take about 5-10 minutes to make, I did one more quick doodle on another bag. I can't decide which one is my favorite. Maybe I need to make another just to break the tie. 

If you like this project, I would love for you to stay in touch and see what else is happening at Thrive 360 Living. You can find me on Facebook, Pinterest & Instagram.
